has the overview. 179 lectorral votes and states john mccain carried. indiana and north carolina where he just barely carried and they will undoubtedly go republican. 25 votes between them. that brings you up to 204. then you have 51 votes in swing states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he is five or six ahead. and colorado 10 where he is four ahead. so that brings him up to 255. he has got to get to 270. so he is 15 short. then you have a market basket of 8 states that cast 98 elector aral votes where the polls are tied. new hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but h

of the video. >> they panicked. >> former white house chief of staff john sununu is senior advisor to mitt romney's campaign. >> this is purely political reaction in a white house that had prepared itself to establish a narrative of a president getting rid of the threat of terrorism using the death of bin laden to focus on that and waking up one morning and finding out that terrorism on 9/11 of this year was back full-fledged and even killing a u.s. ambassador. >> former obama state department spokesman p.j. crowley. >> i don't see a political agenda. i see the fog of war. the fact that we still do not know, it's not about politics. it's about the difficult task of reconstructing what happened and having full access to the site and to all the people that played a role in this. >> september 18th. >> did the administration have any sort of heads up that violence was increasing specifically in libya before the attack? >> i'm not aware of any. this is matter that is under investigation in terms what precipitated the attack. >>> that night on the late show with david letterman, president obama
reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008. secondly, ohio is a republican state. 20 of the last 24 years we had republican governors. the legislature is overwhelmingly republican. every elected member of the supreme court of ohio is republican. 75% of elected officials in 88 counties are republicans. and thirdly, by independent voting measures, 10% to 15% of independent voters in ohio are going to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom. vote for the biblical definition of marriage. vote for life. there is half a million catholics energized in south, ohio, to pull the lever for mitt romney. mitt romney will win, ohio, and is going to win ohio easily. >> sean: wisconsin? >> wisconsin will go for romney because what walker did and what
of news, so thank you. >> thank you. >> shannon: senator john mccane is one of the many people wonder why they didn't sunday in forces. saying our assets should have been better prepared. >> there are forces all over the mediterranean and europe. they were not at a state of readiness that they could have intervened. the incredible aspect of this is that it was well known that there were two attacks on -- on the facility, as you know, in april and in june. >> shannon: there is a lot more from senator mccain in bret baier's special investigation, benghazi, new revelations, today at 3:00 and at 10:00 eastern, information you will not hear anywhere else. with nine days until the election, hurricane sandy is blowing the carefully scripted schedules out the window, forcing president obama and governor romney to change their plans, but it is not slowing them down. we have the latest from the trail. >> president obama will leavemented everd.c. and fly to florida, do a campaign event in florida tomorrow and fly back to washington to monitor the storm. because of sandy, the president has cancelled
dead americans been saved? we talk to ambassador john bolton coming up next. >> plus, the latest g.d.p. report shows our nation's economy growing at a mere 2%. and that anemic growth could be because of government spending. where is the recovery?

: in the supercharged preelection climate the comments by donald trump and john i sanunu have some crying racism. the associated press running a story right now that says 51% of americans now express a up from 48% in 2008.ck is that complicating the president's rekey election efforts? >> i just don't think that we know, geraldo. i think that when people oft oen wonder whether or not voters are honest with pollsters when they call when they are talking about black candidates. i just think the president s an incumbent now. he has a record he has to run on and defend. i really don't believe that colin powell would buck his party again and stick with president obama simply because he also s a black man. i just -- i think that this is not necessarily something that is going really sway this election. it is something to talk about which, in a very close election everything becomes an issue in the final couple weeks. we haven't been in an election this tight in so long and both sides are freaking out pretty much. anything becomes fodder and becomes a story. i don't think it is going be a factor in pres
. >> greta: to someone who has a good idea of how the candidates are feeling right now, senator john mccain. good evening. i am curious at this late date, is there much either candidate can do to woo votes? >> well, i think this libya fiaso and tragedy is turning some veterans' votes and some active-duty military. i am hearing from veterans all over america. they are angered and disgusted. our active-duty military people believe they can't trust the president of the united states. i am hearing from them everywhere. and so, it may have an impact, for example in the state of florida, 1.6 million veterans and their families and they can have an impact. they can in ohio as well. the latest scandals, as you know, the latest -- one of the latest is that -- there was a gathering in the consulate in benghazi of the security people. they reviewed the fact that al qaeda was in the area in big time, that they were having greater and greater danger and they sent that to the state department. obviously, nothing happened there. we now have the information that the counter-terrorism security group --
. john mccain says it's the latest probably not the last bit of information. all along it was not a spontaneous attack. >> it was a classic scandal where almost every day or every few days another shoe drops. it could be as bad as watergate but one of the veterans said nobody died in watergate. they have got pint. >>> this latest bit of information comes one day after we learn the security team in benghazi sent a secret table to the state department dated august 16th saying with their small security force they would not be able to fend off a terrorist attack. >>> it is direct evidence that will not relie on the evidence. it will not defend on the consulate. it is direct that it will the fbi is still conducting their investigation and the president isn't participating in the investigation. he is anticipating the results that can happen and lessons they learn to ensure it won't happen again. >> peter doocy reporting live for us. >> deadly overnight. the death toll stands at 90 and the number could in fact climb. more than 4 and a half million people are still without powe
was beating john mccain in early voting by 19 points. democrats are famous for their get out the vote effort that precedes election today, early voting tends to favor them. look how it did in 08 obama 19 at that time. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger

separated george w. bush and 2004 where john kerry and george w. bush were very close. and then you look at some of the built-in advantages republicans have in the state today, whether paul ryan being on the ticket. whether scott walker having won his recall election on june 5th and expanded his margin from 2010. reince priebus being chairman of the republican national committee. republicans are pretty fired up in wisconsin these days. bill: you mentioned 2004, here are the results, 50-49 kerry over bush. it was less than that. it was .35% of the total vote in the state. >> right. bill: so your point is well-taken. go back to 2008. i want to pop down to ohio because later tonight in the southwestern corner of the state, hamilton county, city of cincinnati, westchester, ohio, is the town. do you know who is from there? >> i don't know, somebody really cool. bill: house speaker john boehner is from westchester, ohio. they will have rudy giuliani and condoleezza rice and the list goes on and on later tonight. the reason they're doing that, steve, you see the border counties around cincinnat
. pollster john mcglocklin went through the results of the last four elections and on average the republicans had 1% more than the democrats. so that poll is off by a factor of 8. so, instead of obama winning by one. romney would win florida by seven. in ohio, obama is shown winning by five in the "times" poll. they had 8 points more democrats than republicans. and historically there were only 2 points more d's than r's. so that's 6 points off. so instead of romney losing by 5. he wins ohio by one. and in west virginia. >> they have owe become that winning by 2. but they have 8 points more democrats than republicans and historically there is one point more republic than democrat. that's off by a factor of 9. romney wins virginia by seven. >> that's pretty much what rove did on his little board. here's my question. can a pollster assume that all democrats and all republicans are going to vote for whoever is running in their party? can you assume that. >> yeah, you can. >> bill: with any certainty. >> yes, you can you get about 90% voting for their party. so you can it's the independents who sp

. kate walsh and singer john mellencamp both making an appearance. >> let's go back to colorado springs and chief political correspondent carl cameron traveling with the romney camp. this is now a sprint to the finish line, isn't it? what can learn about the final campaign steps? >> well, he's going to a number of battle ground states where the polls are incredibly tight. we are now 73 hours and 45 minutes from the polls closing on the east coast. and mitt romney is racing around the battle ground states. we've been o iowa -- to iowa today. this event in colorado, then we'll fly to des moines and continue the sprint across country with visits in ohio and virginia, new hampshire, florida, all jammed up right straight through until monday night when he arrives back in the granite state of new hampshire, home of the first primary where his race began. we heard new rhetoric a moment ago. talking about how he's going to restore confidence, confidence in the economy, confidence in the country's future, confidence in america's reputation around the world. confidence in american government. an
the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with in
servants warrant that action. john mccain blames the pentagon for not being ready to help the americans in peril. he calls it a lack of leadership. >> they were not prepared. there was no alert of any kind that would have enabled them to reach a state of readiness this that they could have intervened. >> leon panetta has said that military leaders didn't have enough information what was going on the ground and could not, therefore, quote, put forces at risk in that situation. gregg? >> gregg: molly henneberg, thanks very much. >> jamie: let's get more on this from former air force vice chief of staff. a fox news military analyst. general, it's a privilege to have you here, sir. leon panetta says we're doing a lot of monday morning quarterbacking. given all the assets we have elsewhere around the world. it does seem worthwhile to ask you what should have happened and when and what do you believe went wrong? >> the secretary of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit
